REVIEWS: "The songs on Shadowlands glisten with acoustic folk melodies,
pastoral orchestral arrangements and even the occasional psychedelic moment."
-Progressive Ears

"The most appealing aspect of Shadowlands is how effortlessly Thompson takes little dabs of various different musical styles and subtly weaves them all together over the course of these nine well crafted compositions. The mood throughout is relaxed and laid back as many of the songs find the emphasis placed on dreamy, acoustic guitar based passages and the warm, inviting timbre of his vocals."
-Sea of Tranquillity

"The words weave their way through the fabric of his music, spinning stories of war torn lands and dark, cold, seemingly lifeless places. The Canadian born Allister Thompson is able to paint pictures through his words and music...would have made my 2009 best of the year list had I got to it in time. Shadowlands is highly recommended for anyone who likes mellow melodic music filled with deep and insightful lyrics."
-Progressive Ears

"...a venture through the realms of progressive and folk with a few shades of psychedelia...I can think of no room for improvement for Thompson's next solo release."
-The Dutch Progressive Rock Page

a deeply satisfying outing by a gifted musician. Bringing together the hauntingly atmospheric textures of Pink Floyd and the moving quirkiness of The Decemberists, this is an album that will appeal both to lovers of indie-folk and singer-songwriter music and psychedelic progressive rock.
